Morgan Kelly wanted a wife and a peaceful life in the shadows of the Sierras. When the young debutante from the east coast swept into his town, he fell instantly. But she made it clear that her affection lie elsewhere and he did his best to let her go. Fate and the devious intentions of other men pushed them together, and there was no going back for either of their hearts. But the way forward was filled with danger.
Against the backdrop of the greatest silver boom in the history of America, Morgan and Lila fight through the perils of early mining, western justice and the fear of hope.
